Tuesday to two years in a federal prison an1 fined It was the maxi mum sentence possible under his conviction for conspiracy to sell judicial favors Manton was sentenced by Fed eral Judge W Calvin Chesnut after making a sometimes fervid but dispassionate plea to have the jurys verdict set aside the third person save when 6fThe chagrin and humiliation he had suffered Manton summoned a long array of legal arguments against the conclusions the jury reached on June 3 He cited federal cases to sup port his contention that he had been innocent of wrongdoing and of any part in a conspiracy He spoke for wellqver an hour before Judge Chesnut rejected the plea and passed sentence Even while Manton was makin what was perhaps one of the most important pleas in his career the court where he formerly sat was reinstating for reargument one of the major cases which figured on the charge of bribery and con spiracy Bagley Extends Open Invitation for Gas Tax Evasion Data DES MOINES Treas urer W G C

of Husband in Local Arson Case Is Upheld by Judge The state supreme court Tues day affirmed the conviction of George Bazoukas on a charge of arson inconnection with the Bos caffikfireiere Jaa but reversed theconviction of his wife Eugenia The decision frees Mrs Bazou kas who was under a 10 year sen tence imposed by Judge T A Beardmore after the couples con viction by a Worth county jury after a joint trial Both were at liberty under bonds of 52000 each No Circumstances of Guilt The opinion reversing the con viction of Eugenia Bazoukas in part said other than her presence in the building as a visitor there are no circumstances from which her guilt might be inferred Assuming that she had knowl edge of the commission of this crime we have grave doubts that under the circumstances there was sufficient evidence to warrant her conviction as a participant The proposition is very close but we are constrained to hold that the evidence was insufficient to sustain the conviction of Eugenia Bazoukas Mr Bazoukas has 30 days in which to file a petition for re hearing of his case before the supreme court according to L R Boomhower the attorney who prepared the original appeal Rehearing Is Possible Wording of the supreme courts decision will decide whether or not an appeal will be made Mr Boomhower said If no rehearing is asked Mr Bazoukas would be gin serving his sentence as soon after July 20 as the supreme court decision is officially transmitted to the district court clerk here A rehearing would involve from 30 to 90 clays the attorney esti mated The 68 year old Mason Cityan was
